Steaming along at Elsecar!

By 16

Year 2 have been learning all about the history of trains today. We visited Elsecar Heritage Centre to see the steam trains and learn all about them. The volunteers at Elsecar were working very hard painting and repairing the old trains. We saw the driver shovelling the coal into the fire box, it looked really hard and dirty work. We stood on the bridge and watched the train go by, the driver blew the steam whistle and covered us all in steam and smoke.
What did you learn about trains today?
